Pro Life Catholic Bible Study on Abortion
Bible Study on Abortion
Sadly, many women put their faith in the Supreme Court, rather than in the Supreme Being, God, who said in Exodus 20:13, “Thou shalt not kill”. The Bible speaks several places in regards to the sanctity of the womb. In Jeremiah 1:5, God says:
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations."
This above verse shows that God has a plan for us even before he creates us in the womb. For man to thwart God's plan through the killing of His creation is an abomination. Similarly, God tells Isaiah that He formed him from the womb too:
Isaiah 44:24: Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, who formed you from the womb, "I am the LORD, who made all things, who stretched out the heavens alone, who spread out the earth -- Who was with me?
In Luke 1:43-44, Elizabeth, the cousin of Mary says, “And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy."
What are Catholic Scripture Passages on Pro Life and Abortion
The study, “Analyzing the Effect of Anti-Abortion U.S. State Legislation in the Post-Casey Era,” evaluated abortion data from nearly every state over a span of 21 years, from 1985 to 2005 - a longer period than nearly any other peer-reviewed study. It contributes to a substantial body of social science research which finds that parental involvement laws and public funding restrictions are effective. All Christians agree.
Abortion is harmful to the mother's health, to the child's health and to our country's health and is the most frequently performed medical procedure in America. About 900,000 abortions are performed every year. You'd think that with such a common procedure we'd be absolutely certain it was safe. After all, when five or six people are injured by a defective product, that product is recalled for repair or removed from the market. And, if a drug is found to have harmful side effects, that drug is pulled from the market and there will be hundreds of millions of dollars in lawsuits.
Is Abortion Murder? Bible Study
The Bible clearly teaches that abortion is wrong. This teaching comes across in many ways and for many reasons. Some people point out that the word "abortion" is not in the Bible, and that is true. Nevertheless, the teaching about abortion is there. This is the case with many teachings. The word "Trinity" is not in the Bible, but the teaching about the Trinity is there. In any case, a person who wants to deny the teaching about abortion would deny it even if the word were there.Thou shalt not murder, makes it clear that abortion is murder. A Bible study reflects Bible is murder.
